This week’s Nintendo eShop highlight is Pokémon Dream Radar, an augmented reality game that has you searching for and capturing Pokémon around you, Ghostbusters-style, using the Nintendo 3DS camera.

 

Pokémon you catch in Pokémon Dream Radar can be transferred to the Pokémon Black/White 2 games, which are out this weekend. Some of these Pokémon include special abilities and are exclusive to Dream Radar. You can find more details here and grab the game for $2.99.

 

Cave Story 3D is available for download via the Nintendo eShop this week as well. This version of the game has been updated with widescreen support and stereoscopic 3D, as well as additional challenge modes. It costs $9.99.

 

Moving along, there’s a Nintendo 3DS demo for Style Savvy: Trendsetters available on the eShop as well. The Fashion Contest demo is the first of two demos, and allows you to create an outfit based on the contest theme and compete with your in-game rivals for the prize.

 

Also available this week are the new downloadable courses for New Super Mario Bros. 2, details of which can be found here. As previously reported, each downloadable course pack costs $2.50 and contains three courses.

 

Rounding out the eShop releases are Samurai G ($1.99) and the Game Boy Dr. Mario for 3DS Virtual Console ($3.99).

 

Finally, Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone and Crosswords Plus, two retail games that are out in North America today, also have download versions available via the Nintendo eShop. Both games cost $29.99 each.
